Anxiety Disorders/Anxiety, Perhaps?



I'm a young female, with some weird problems. I have seem to developed an aversion to people and general, and before I go out to places, I find myself hyperventilating, crying and general hysteria. If I do actually make it past that point, when I am in public it turns to paranoia, convinced that everyone is looking at me, judging me. I'm quite often looked down upon for my "anti-social" behaviour.

I have begun to wonder if I have anxiety, but the couple of mention I mentioned it to (family) told me I was just over dramatic and needed to get over myself.

I also find myself in weird moods, where I become quite aggressive, and generally want to hurt people. Badly. To the point of vivid visualisation. Sometimes this turns from other people to myself, however.

I just really need some idea of if I have something wrong, or if this is all just in my head.

Thank you.

Hi Becky,

This can be treated by going on a Hypoglycemic Diet (
